Nowadays, there is a constant search for paths about the digital transformation of production systems and manufacturing-logistics processes, raising a number of issues:

  • Where are domestic and internatinal research heading for the Industry 4.0 paradigm?
  • What are the possible developments for digital factories at EU level?
  • How can we identify the current position of our company in the development of digitalization?
  • What Industry 4.0 technology solutions help to increase the company’s productivity and improve its competitiveness?
  • How can we put our resources at the service of production with less loss?
  • What role will robots play in the industry and service sector?

In the lectures of the research seminar series, we provide an overview of the key technologies and key issues in Industry 4.0, and then answer the above dilemmas by presenting practical examples, highlighting theoretical and practical achievements in simulation modeling, data science, manufacturing optimization, and robotics.
